Let's say there are five people that listen to such a podcast.
3 of those like long podcasts. 2 like short podcasts.
If you do a long podcast the 3 will enjoy it and will likely listen to future podcasts. The two might get bored at how long it is and more likely not listen to future podcasts.
You just lost some listeners with those two.
If you do a short podcasts the 2 will like it. The 3 will feel it's short BUT there's a greater possibility that they will listen to future podcasts because they crave for moar after left wanting from the previous short podcast.
You retain your listeners.
If you want to retain listeners going with a short podcast is preferable imo.
If you just enjoy chatting and listening to each other's voices without regard of retaining/gaining listeners then go with the long podcast.
As a listener the only decent reason imo for not liking listening to short podcasts is because there wasn't enough relevant information given out to go through in the podcast.
If that's the case then the length is not the problem but the presentation.
